why????

im assuming its climate control if its a fairmont....

you could probably apply a higher voltage and make them quicker, but at some point will be too much. id also imagine it will be harder with CC. and it would be a prick if u did break it..

it won't help much ... to cool the air you pass it through a radiator which is cold. There is a limit on how much air will cool on one pass, that's why we use the recyc button! :P
If you speed the air up it will cool down less as it is in touch with the radiator for less time, so in the end if you speed your fans up your air con will work less efficiently!

yeh i understand that.. i generally dont use aircon coz the trips are quite short so the car only just starts getting cold by the time im at my next stop and then gets hot again from sitting in the sun.. i was just after the fans.. when i aint using aircon.. ohwell thanks anyways

if its noticibly slower at the vents than others, it may be that your a/c evaporator or your heater matrix is partially clogged up.....
